Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE)

Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education will help all children at Pomphlett to gain a measure of knowledge, skills and understanding on which to build confident, healthy and independent lives. Through a range of activities, circle times and their own experiences, the children are encouraged to explore their own worth within the school and the wider community. In doing so, the aim for each individual is to become increasingly responsible for their actions and learning.


Through active participation and personal reflection, the children will learn to respect each other and understand our diversities and differences.


The PSHCE education has three strands —Health & Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. To ensure effective provision, we include  comprehensive coverage of economic wellbeing, careers and enterprise education, as well as education for personal safety, including assessing and managing both negative and positive risk.


To support our PSHCE learning we offer opportunities for children to meet and work with a range of adults; including guest speakers, inter skills workshops, extra curricular clubs and pastoral provision. This prepares pupils for life in modern Britain, developing their understanding of the fundamental British Values.
